2013 Taurus Coolant smell but no leak

Post by GhostRider » Tue Oct 03, 2017 10:42 am

So I noticed a coolant smell lately but I am not losing any coolant. I had a coolant flush a little while back as Ford recommends. What could it be??

Was the smell present immediately after the flush?

Never paid it much attention. I had the flush done in November 2016. I made an appointment and have taken the car out of service just to be safe. I would still like to know what everyone thinks. Should I be worried about the water pump?

If your coolant level isn’t dropping, I wouldn’t worry about it. Did they pressure test it to see if there was a leak anywhere?
